Nebraska Activity #139948, 1.0 hours CLE (Distance Learning)
LLC operating agreements may be the document most commonly drafted or reviewed and negotiated by transactional counsel. The almost-default choice of entity that LLCs have become make these agreements pervasive. But their virtual universality belies their complexity. The tax allocation and property distribution provisions alone—where tax reality and cash reality may differ substantially—require a firm grasp of tax law, the client’s distribution plans, and financial accounting. Management provisions vary depending on whether the entity is member-managed or manager-managed, with fiduciary duties modifiable in a way they are not in other entities. These and other provisions make LLC operating agreements challenging to draft and negotiate. This program provides you with a real-world guide to drafting the most important provisions of LLC operating agreements.
